Antique 1920's French Art Deco Maison Gripoix Glass Melon Bead Necklace with Channel Set Rhinestone & Sterling Silver Ornament. The silver elements are hallmarked with the Boars Head for French silver, there's also a makers mark but it's too tiny to make out even with my 60x loupe, it's a lozenge shape with what appears to be a large "R" and a small "s" inside. This is true Gripoix glass, the necklace was most certainly made by a Couture house, very possibly early Chanel. It measures approximately 40 around.
The beads graduate in size from 6mm to 11mm. In overall very good antique condition with wear consistent to age and material, there is 1 tiny rhinestone missing which is clearly visible in the up close photos, otherwise I see no broken beads.
